What do you like best?
how to map the database to the cordinate system and demonstraeing them on the map ,,, actully there is a lot of programs doing that , but there is a lot of features in here let us draw , edit and customize things ,
database and metadata which connected to the objects which located on map is very nice in this program .
What do you dislike?
well , its a long list ,, inspite of a lot of flexebeilty with Mapbasic ,, there is a limitation when u use a network lecince ,, for example , hot keys , shortcust is suck in here , so i wrote a script which is good in my home ,, but i cant use it in my work because of the server thing , so if i put that in server it would affect all useres ,,
more important is navigationnnnnnnnn in this program which is very very very bad ,,
selcet , zoom , deselect , pan , every basic tool , need 3 or 4 clicks with mouse to do it , which can be sooo easy ,, i think its really not hard for the developer in there to develope the navigation system , they could just do it right , give more hot keys ,, like adobe photoshop or autocad ,,,i think they have a lot to deal with in this field .
symbole , legende ,, maßstab ,, :(
Recommendations to others considering the product
try the demo ,, or beta version first ,,,
navigation are suck ,, illestrating the symbols and layout ,,, legende ,, alot of small things annouying me because its simple to fix or develop , and they just keep ignoring it ,
u should learn something in mapbasic which is a scripting language and can help a lot ,
the program can be customized , new tools that meet ur requierment ,, developing "plugins" can be done with mapbasic,,
plotting and printg system need a lot of work too ,, test all these , if u satesfy ,, go for it ;) ,
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
we doing a lot of stuff , mapinfo have a lot of realations and workspaces that we created to locate every things on a map ,
so if its empty houses and we want a plan for it , we will just add this information to the object , locate where are they and they we have it ,
